-on environment in a cyclical upturn. >> reporter: now, the other scenario: >> in an environment where we go off the fiscal cliff and we see continued problems on the debt side for the u.s., i think the gold price outperforms the white metals. >> reporter: gold's price will also depend on whether central banks continue to diversify their holdings into gold, and whether they implement more quantitative easing to boost growth. the outlook for platinum is a little more complicated. there have been major supply disruptions due to labor unrest in south africa, which produces nearly all of the world's platinum. it also depends on demand. >> europe is a key part of the platinum demand picture. if europe can recover, certainly that's going to bode well for platinum demand. if the price trades higher, it may affect some of the price- sensitive sectors like jewelry, like chinese jewelry demand. >> reporter: of course, many investors only buy metals for investment reasons. currently, there's over $150 billion invested in gold exchange-traded funds, an all- time high. erika miller, nbr, new york. >> tom: th

market a little more friendly, and mak making the business environment more friendly. i think a large part of it, and a big part of it is abandoning the austerity. at least until they're able to return to economic growth and slowly start piecing it in. >> susie: let me ask you about this, wall street has been so focused on the fiscal cliff situation, how important are these issues in europe for american investors? >> i think the issues in europe are important because they've been a pain in most investors' sides for the past couple of years. if you think about the end game in europe, which probably includes some type of fiscal integration, we realize it is going to take a long time. i believe that what you are seeing in europe is creating some volatility in the markets over the next couple of years to come. however, the last action from the european central bank was a game changer. in coming in and opening up the o.n.t n.t. program bought the sovereigns a little more time to work through their issues. i think the market is going to weigh in on investors' minds over the years to come. >
